CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -Twice a week inmates in the Summit County Jail in Akron can order commissary items and it turns out some items are bigger sellers than others.
The jail has a capacity of 671 inmates, which means the orders can be large and varied.
The items are purchased from an inmates' “trust account,” according to a Summit County Sheriff’s office spokesman.
Family and friends can put money into that account.
Here are the five most ordered items in the Summit County Jail:
- Ramen Noodle Soup- $1.00
- Iced Honey Buns- $1.20
- Twin Beef Sticks- $1.30
- Jalapeno Potato Chips- $.70
- Instant Coffee- $3.67
Earlier this year we requested and received the same list from the Cuyahoga County Jail and some of the same items were on the list but at much lower prices.
